    I think that you might be the tackle PIMP !!!!!!



    I have the same but maybe slightly less problem. These pics are old and I have added quite a few to my collection. This does not include the bay fishing stuff and I dont have the surf bug.

    no, ryan white just took all the info down. i believe john actually wrapped them. ive been wanting to get a century rod from them for a while now.

    those conoflex's are the shize. i have the nevada 13's and they make the best drum rods for the upper texas coast, cast better than any breakaway rod.

    Sell your first born, then sell your man seeds, then go sell your blood... Not sure if that'll really help tho, lol!

    kidflex - You're not alone. I have been trying to check myself in for "anglers' rehab" - at least, I took the 1st step, I start selling some of my reels & rods; however, still felt off the wagon & buy some back :)
    That's impressive collection - at least you sold the Daiwa 900H & 600H

    Not really. That would be a task. Besides, I don't have everything in one location. I found out the other day that some of my tackle that I left on a buddy's boat has now taken residence in Panama.:eek: He thought it was his stuff. :confused:

    The only reason he noticed it was because he kept seeing knots going through the roller guides. That really pisses him off. :D I normally peel off about 3 to 400 yards of line when I top-off in the middle of fishing season. He doesn't. He replaces line all the way about four times a year. Some of us are cheap in certain ways.:eek:
    I told him to take off the reel seats, and he would see my name and phone number etched in the frame hidden under the reel seats. :D

    I wish my girl was that dumb. It would make my life easier. :) At this time she has taken my Cabo 20, 40, and Calutta 700TE. I have not let her go near my Accurate. She has been eyeing my Stella 8000. :mad:

    How's that saying: What is mine is now her's? I must have missed that fine print on the contract.

    Look at it this way, she likes to fish, so you get to fish too. If your woman hated fishing and wants you to fish less and spend more time with her, then you'd be worse off! ;)

    When we fish, she end up fishing. I what you call a personal mate. :) I do agree with you, if she hate fishing it would be much worst. I wouldn't be marry. :D
